CVE-2017-5689 Scanner Detail
Intel Active Management Technology (AMT), Intel Small Business Technology (SBT), and Intel Standard Manageability (ISM) are system management features provided by Intel. These features allow IT professionals to remotely manage and monitor devices, providing a range of functionalities such as security, remote control, and inventory management. These features are widely used in business environments to ensure that devices are fully secured and maintained, alongside reducing the company's IT management costs.
